JAH KONGO also known as THE AFRICAN WARRIOR, was born Mandla Qotsini on 01 July 1985 in Soweto, Jozi. He moved to Cape Town, Khayelitsha with his family when he was a baby and there he fell in love with music from a very young age.
He started performing in the church choir singing tenor and enjoyed it greatly. At age 13 he was hanging around a famous local reggae artist known as Mega, and that’s where he met Zorro and Red Stone at Mega’s house, there he fell in love with reggae music. He enjoyed the melody, the harmony and it’s lyrics. So inspired, in the same year him and friend Thabiso started their first group called Chuck T after Kongo’s then stage name, Chuck, and T from Thabiso. The group did well in local road shows and high school shows.| | | Next → | Single Page
